    Summary

    Ellie Potter’s introduction to the magical world is a little more complicated than intended. No one, not even Dumbledore, expected the Girl-Who-Lived to Awaken as a sentinel. Which just goes to show you how little wizards understand Sentinels – nothing like being thrust into a new world, filled with dangers and enemies to Awaken a sentinel’s instincts.

    Goblins have little use for wizards, but sentinels and guides are another matter entirely. Sentinels are warriors; ruthless, fierce, and without mercy on the battlefield. The kind of being a Goblin can respect. So when the Girl-Who-Lived comes into the bank, Awakening…well. There’s little they could do to aid an underaged witch without a magical guardian. A Sentinel? Anyone who tries to interfere in affairs between Sentinels and Guides and the Horde courts war.

    Ellie leaves Gringotts with far more than she might have. The goblins send send her off, already plotting. Change is coming. A storm is building. There will be profit and battle in the coming days.

    Summary

    Duncan stared down at him dumbly, suddenly remembering that this was not just a little boy, but the future of House Atreides—and he was by no means old enough to walk around without his mother or a bodyguard.

    “Where is your mother?” he asked. Paul grinned mischievously and grabbed him around his leg again. 

    “Up! Up!” Paul said, sounding more determined as he started hopping a bit.

    Summary

    “What’s in the bundle, Duncan?” Gurney asked, his tone dry. Perhaps a keepsake? It was hard to tell with the young man. His posture betrayed no ill will, neither jest, for once. It was more akin to pride, a different one than his usual strain as well.

    Duncan did not speak, and only sat across from him, placing his report half forgotten in front of him. Still smiling the least sardonic smile he had seen up until this point, Duncan carefully moved his arms, and slightly lowered the cape.

    In an instant, Gurney could feel the ground fall under his feet, his eyes widen in a mixture of alarm, and so much more. Duncan only smiled more broadly.

    Soft, downy tufts of black-black hair, framing the spitting image of the Duke and the Lady, were revealed. Two pudgy little fists lay on his broad chest, eyes closed in sound sleep, over dark green clothes that imitated the working uniform he, the Warmaster, wore himself.

    Summary

    Duncan is sitting in a council meeting when they hear the scream. It’s a child’s scream, a boy’s. There’s only one person it could be. He exchanges a panicked glance with Leto and the two of them scramble out of their seats and sprint for Paul’s room, Gurney right behind them.

    Paul’s chambers aren’t far from the council room and it doesn’t take them long to reach him. There’s two guards lying dead in front of the open doors and Duncan draws his sword as they enter. They’re just in time to see a dark-clad figure slide a blade between Paul’s ribs and rip it out, leaving the boy to collapse on the floor, blood pooling from his body.
